This documentary, a piece entitled “Children Full Of Life” takes place in a fourth grade class in Kanazawa, Japan. The teacher of these students, Kanamori Toshiro teaches his students to bond, and encourages them to write “notebook letters”. These letters are an insight to the mind of a 10 year-old child.
The letters are always very well done, and insightful, something that is telling of Kanamori-sensei’s teachings. I thought this wonderfully done documentary was far too touching to keep buried in the confines of YouTube!
Part 4/5 (I think this was the most touching, though the last part is, as well)

I ran across this video by the band Sour, while I perused the sites that I normally do in a day’s time. The song is called 日々の音色 (hibi no neiro–the tone of everyday). Fans of the band created the various parts of this video by filiming themselves on webcams. All I can say is that a LOT must have went into making and editing this video.
I am not familiar with the band Sour, but, the video is well made! The song is great, too (what little I can understand). But, it has a good beat. So good beat + great visuals = a pretty damned enjoyable time spent watching and listening! Enjoy!!

I love to share YouTube videos. I have shared quite a few, already. This is a little gem I ran across in my daily browsing. It’s quite good, for a commercial.
Here is the States, DirecTV really does have some pretty blah commercials. I mean some of them are good, especially the DVR ones, but, they haven’t made anything like this one.
This one features a number of movie villains/monsters all acting very peaceably. Apparent music doesn’t soothe the savage beast, Direct TV does!
The cast really is all-star. Freddy and Jason, as well–one of the greatest villains–Darth Vader are shown doing some very non villainous deeds! All set to the song “Silent Night”!!
I especially enjoy the part where Vader is blowing on a dried dandelion, to scatter the pips around! Watch, and enjoy:

I watched this video twice already. It was definitely one I had to share here. It’s a wonderful, stop-motion animation using still photos. This must have taken so much work and time! It turned out wonderfully! It’s entitled:
オオカミはブタを食べようと思った。Stop motion with wolf and pig
It really is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. In a long time. And I watch a lot of YouTube videos that are pretty good. This is pure ingenuity, here. And it tells a pretty cool story! Enjoy! I did…twice!!

I ran across this little…uhhhh…gem on BoingBoing this morning. I tried watching it, but, it’s pretty graphic. And it’s just a work safety video! I’d like to know which company used this gorefest to scare their workers straight? I know it would’ve kept me as safe as possible.
Now, I’ll be straight. I haven’t watched it all the way through. It seriously kept me squirming in my seat. I made it up to the part where…well…let’s just say that there is a guy with a nail sticking out of his face. It’s in his eye, and I’ll be damned if it didn’t look convincing. GAH!
So, without further ado, here it is: “Will You Be Here Tomorrow?”
